The City of Pittsburgh is gearing up for an action-packed summer. Free copies of the 2011 Citiparks Summer Magazine are now available at various locations throughout the city, providing easy information on the City's 2011 schedule of summer events such as community festivals, competitions, and family activities like movie and jazz nights in the parks.
The 60-page booklet also includes reference materials such as city facility lists and phone numbers.
"Summer is the perfect time to take to the parks, the trails, and the rivers to rediscover the treasures that surround us each day in Pittsburgh," said Mayor Luke Ravenstahl. "The Summer Magazine is a city resident's official ‘user's guide' for summer programs and activities. Head to the great outdoors – across town or just around the corner in your own neighborhood – and you'll be amazed by all you discover to do in the city of Pittsburgh."
Print copies of the Summer Magazine are currently available at Citiparks facilities, the City-County Building, the Schenley Park Visitor Center, the VisitPittsburgh welcome center, and Carnegie Library branches within city limits.
The Carnegie Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped is producing a free audio version of the booklet. To request a copy in audio format, contact the Carnegie Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped by phone: 412-687-2440, fax: 412-687-2442, or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
